After famously dropping out of the New York Police Academy to pursue his rock and roll dreams, Eddie Money burst on to the scene in the late ‘70s with a series of sweaty, blue collar hits in the mold of Bob Seger, Mitch Ryder, and Bruce Springsteen, then capitalized on the MTV era by narrating a series of funny videos that cemented his image as a rock and roll Everyman, albeit one with a sneaky good songwriting touch and a powerful blue-eyed soul set of pipes. The lifestyle got the best of him during the mid-‘80s, but he made a remarkable comeback in the late ‘80s and continues on the circuit to this day offering his trademark mix of no-nonsense rock ‘n’ roll and regular guy stage persona. The Complete Hits and More is by far the biggest Eddie Money collection ever, offering, like the title says, all 24 chart hits plus tracks drawn from 10 different albums and some rare live tracks drawn from the promo-only Livin’ It Up EP (which debuts on CD here in its entirety), featuring “Two Tickets to Paradise,” “Baby Hold On,” “Think I’m in Love,” “Shakin’,” his comeback duet with Ronnie Spector, “Take Me Home Tonight”/”Be My Baby,” “I Wanna Go Back,” “Walk on Water,” and “Peace in Our Time.” Bill Kopp supplies the liner notes, with added photos and album art. 35 tracks remastered by Maria Triana at Battery Studios…two CDs to paradise for Eddie Money fans!

All in all, this is the best Eddie Money comp out there. However, in retrospect I would pass on this collection, and simply purchase his debut album ("Eddie Money") and "Can't Hold Back" which will cover the lion's share of his biggest hits. If that leaves you wanting more, next in line (in order of best to worst) would be "No Control, "Life for the Taking," "Where's the Party" and "Playing for Keeps."
I almost gave this five stars but I never considered Eddie a favorite. I like a lot of his songs but few of them really thrill me. Please don't curse me with the unhelpful votes. Also, the liner notes are informative but lack quotes and insights into the songs to go with the chart positions and album sales figures. I'd especially like to know what led to the team-up with Ronnie Spector (for "Take Me Home Tonight") that ended a minor slump for Money and brought Ms. Spector back to the limelight after about 20 years.
Definitely the best Eddie Money compilation ever.
